This tangy, sweet-and-spicy take on barbecue sauce has a nice balance of vinegar, sweetness from the cherries and spice from the chili powder. Try it with pork tenderloin or steak. Source: EatingWell Magazine, January/February 2019

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine cherries, onion, vinegar, ketchup, brown sugar, water, garlic, chile powder and cumin in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until the onion is tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Transfer the mixture to a blender. Remove the center piece of the lid (so steam can escape) ; secure the lid and place a towel over the opening. Process until smooth, about 30 seconds. Add butter and salt; process until smooth.
